Cather based one of her most famous novels on the true story of a Bohemian woman she had known since childhood in their small Nebraska town of Red Cloud. Ántonia's story is in one sense that of an early pioneer, a child of immigrants making her way through American small town life as best she can, stumbling along the way, but always with great energy and determination.
